While idly sitting at my desk and avoiding work EyeSpy came across this new product, just in time for Joy Garner if she gets voted in as Police and Crime Commissioner, but after last Thursdays results EyeSpy isn’t holding his breath. Continue reading →
David Conway was not the only one with a big smile on his face Friday morning as Labour awoke to the short sharp judgement of the residents of Springfields and Trent Vale. Whilst it might not stop the move, the backlash against the move to the CBD was apparent, which raised the spirits of many council officers on Friday morning.

If I am elected, I will stand up for the local community and be their strong local voice in the Council Chamber.
